Saw this topic coming to life on another thread and thought it merited its own. What books have you enjoyed reading and gained recognizable benefit from? For simplicity's sake, let's leave the Bible out of this discussion.

I've found all the Dale Carnegie standards to be easy, productive reads. One I particularly enjoyed is Lincoln the Unknown, by Dale Carnegie. It inspired me to read Cigars, Whiskey & Winning - Leadership Lessons from General Ulysses S. Grant. by Al Kaltman. Also liked The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell.

Millionare Next Door - awesome book, everybody should read that to learn where the true wealth in America comes from.


Aggh! E-Myth Contractor! I felt like I got raped and taken advantage of for paying for that book! I must have missed something reading it, I hated it with a passion, second only to the original E-myth book.

I like Rich Dad Poor Dad, every 16-17 year old should read that book to get an idea of what paths lay open for you depending on how you view the world.
